AT&T iPhone Plans: New Apple Deal Could Have A Major Impact On iPhone Sales

AT&T iPhone Plans: Some consumers are interested in upgrading to the next generation Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone and will do whatever it takes to make it happen. Others, however, need a push in the right direction.

For now, it appears that AT&T is the right wireless carrier for consumers who are on the fence and unsure of what they want to do next.

According to a report by AppleInsider, touching on an email sent out to customers, AT&T is offering an Apple iPhone 5 for free to those who are willing to trade in their old iPhone 4S model while also agreeing to a two year contract.

For those who have been looking to purchase an iPhone 5, as opposed to holding onto their current 4S, there may be no better time than now for moving forward.

Apple Inc (AAPL)The report goes on to note that there is no information on whether or not the deal is open to every customer nationwide or those in a particular location. That being said, it is safe to say that AT&T and Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) have something in the works.

Here is what you need to know, taken direct from the fine print of the email offer:

“Limited time offer subject to change at any time. Offer only available in AT&T owned stores. iPhone 5 16GB Offer: Applies to iPhone 16 GB priced at $199.99 w/new 2-yr agreement w/voice (min $39.99/mo) & data (min $20/mo) plans or Mobile Share plan (min $85/mo). Free after using $200 AT&T Promotion Card received with eligible trade-in.”

While this sounds like a great deal for those who have an Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) 4S and want to upgrade, it does lead to one very important question: will most people shy away from this offer as they wait for the next generation iPhone to hit the market in the months to come?

Perhaps, Apple is making this offer as a means of clearing out excess iPhone 5 inventory to make way for new devices by the end of 2013.

It will be interesting to see how much success AT&T has with this offer. Along the way, they are sure to find Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone customers who are looking to upgrade. However, there may be just as many (or more) who don’t want to lock themselves into a new contract before the next generation iPhone is released.

What do you think the motive is behind this deal? Is it a good thing for Apple?
